Still at it. Still in the war. Now writing in French for a scene. French! I don't know any French. I also, when I have seen this scene in my head before now, have only really looked at it in flashback. That is, it only really takes place in amongst another scene.
Why am I writing it as it happens? Why?
I blame William.
Favourite line so far of the novel, though, which is:
“Madmorsels!” Batemann’s command of Aixlenean
was shocking, “Noose ‘ave ey mongy!”
